Dragonflies and Damselflies of Huntley Meadows Park
Upload spottings of dragonflies and damselflies seen at Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA. Please provide as much information as possible for each spotting, especially the exact location where your photos were taken. Don't hesitate to post unknown spottings -- we enjoy the challenge of identifying unknown specimens! And don't worry about posting "doubles." There is natural variation within each species that can be documented by multiple photos of the same species. Also multiple spottings of the same species can help to determine adult flight periods.
